House GOP Reelects Boehner As Speaker

House Republicans have re-elected Speaker John Boehner to serve as speaker for the 114th Congress, Republicans announced. 

The election had just taken place behind closed doors in a Capitol office building. 

Boehner will also face a vote on the House floor in January which requires an absolute majority of all members voting for a person. He’s expected to win the vote easily following the significant Republican victories at the ballot box.
